We all know that planning a wedding is very expensive, we want to ensure that every cent is put to good use! Spending your wedding budget on favors that will be tossed is hard to stomach. The growing trend is providing wedding favors that your guests will actually want. Here are some of the cutting edge ideas we are starting to see!
It doesn’t get any cuter than individual succulents for a spring or summer wedding. Not only are these plants cute and lively, they are also one of the easiest to care for. Your guests will have no trouble at all keeping them around long after your special day is over. Whether mini or not, succulents are eye catching, unique and also add a great pop of greenery to your wedding.
First it was cupcakes, then cake balls, then macarons, now the next big edible wedding favor is donuts, or donut holes, for a late night snack! You want to be sure to go with cake style donuts as these hold up longer. Some couples go so far as to add a coffee station to go along with their special end of the night treats. As we all know, people love food. It’s hard to go wrong with a delicious wedding favor!
- Homemade Salsa
Yes, that’s right, salsa. Why not “spice up” your big day! Hot sauce or salsa is another great edible idea for the low-key backyard, outdoor or summer wedding. Simple to make and easy to store! Gifting your guests with salsa in a cute personalized jar will leave them with something to remember your special day even after their spicy treat is gone.
Let your love shine! With the 1920’s-1930’s Gatsby inspired celebrations gaining popularity, moonshine matches a theme or is great by itself! While actual real moonshine is illegal in the Unites States, the apple pie moonshine version is great for a fall wedding!
Honey is a “meant to bee” sweet favor for a rustic, country, or shabby chic wedding. This inexpensive favor has a long shelf life and can be personalized with cute labels, ribbons, burlap or fabric.
I hope these wedding favor trends have helped make your decision easier. Be creative! Any favor can be made special with a little personalized touch on the packaging. It also doesn’t hurt to remember that the key to most people’s hearts is through their stomach!
